“I quickly threw this recipe together one night as an experiment. It resulted in sweet-and-spicy crunchy-coated moist chicken breasts, which DH gobbled down and professed his gratitude. I believe this coating would also be nice on salmon filets, obviously adjusting the cooking time to 10-12 minutes instead of 25-30 minutes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine crushed gingersnaps, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper in a wide bowl.
  3. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/2-inch thickness.
  4. Coat the bottom of a baking pan with approximately 1 tbs. of cooking spray.
  5. Spray each side of both chicken breasts with approximately 1 tbs. cooking spray and dredge in gingersnap mixture.
  6. Lay chicken breasts side-by-side in baking pan. Sprinkle desired amount of leftover gingersnap mixture on and around chicken breasts.
